Real reject big-money offer for Mateo Kovacic

Fabio Coentrao is returning to Portugal

Real Madrid have rejected a big-money offer from Juventus for Mateo Kovacic, according to AS.

Kovacic has been in fine form during pre-season, impressing in both legs of Real Madrid’s 5-1 Spanish Supercopa win over Barcelona.

His performances have not gone unnoticed and AS report long-term admirers Juventus made a bid worth around €75m (£68.8m) for the Croatia midfielder.

However, Real Madrid flatly rejected the offer a few days ago and insist the former Inter Milan man is not for sale.
